      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

Storage of adhesives

2 posts in this topic

 If I open a caulk-like canister of say 3M 4200 but use only some of it. What is your suggested way of storing the canister so the rest of the tube doesn't harden or otherwise go bad? 

Thanks!

Seal the tube the best you can with tape or a wire nut and tape.  Some people put it in a freezer until needed.  Over time though it will harden in the tube once opened.
